    Whiplash injury in Robin Hood’s Bay


    Robin Hood’s Bay is a fishing village in the North York Moors National Park. You might not have associated Robin Hood with Yorkshire, as Sherwood Forest is not near it and neither is Nottingham. However, perhaps one of its smugglers was like Robin Hood and that’s how it got its name. It’s one of those villages that would have been perfect for smugglers; it has a warren of streets which twist and turn, so a local would have been able to escape from a customs man quite easily. It was John Leland who first mentioned Robin Hood’s Bay in 1536, stating that it was a “fischer tounlet of 20 bootes with Dok or Bosom of a mile yn length.” At one time Robin Hood’s Bay was a more important port that nearby Whitby.

    Did you have a whiplash injury in Robin Hood’s Bay?

    With all the winding streets in this area, you may have taken a tumble in one of the step alleys and ended up with a whiplash injury in Robin Hood’s Bay. If so, you might be eligible to make a claim for your whiplash injury in Robin Hood’s Bay if you can prove that you were not to blame for the accident in which you sustained it. You and your personal injury lawyer will need to prove that the accident in which you sustained your whiplash injury in Robin Hood’s Bay was the fault of another person. You also need to have received medical treatment as soon as practicable after your accident.

    When must I file a claim?

    Usually you must file our claim within three years of the date of the accident, but there are some accidents and their injuries which have a much shorter time period in which you need to make a claim. If you need to know how long you have in which to file your particular claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline.

    For example, if you are injured while a crime is in progress, you only have two years to make your claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority. You also have two years in which to make a claim if your accident was at almost any airport in the world, or aboard an aircraft or at sea.
